"The Winter's Tale" at Esplanade Theatre, Singapore

Suffice to say that I’m very excited to find out what’s coming to Singapore next year. Having missed Avenue Q there this year and looks like will be missing Mamma Mia! in KL later this year, I would need to make sure that I don’t miss this one too.

The Winter's Tale
By William Shakespeare

26 - 31 March 2009
Esplanade Theatre, Singapore

The Bridge Project is a major new transatlantic venture for director Sam Mendes (Academy Award winner for American Beauty), Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and The London Old Vic, which is run by Kevin Spacey (Academy Award winner for The Usual Suspects and American Beauty).

Sam Mendes will direct The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare in 2009 starring Simon Russell Beale, Sinead Cusack and Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona) from the UK; and Richard Easton, Josh Hamilton and Ethan Hawke from the US. Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) is proud to be one of the five co-commissioners to have created this prestigious production.

Singapore will be the first – and only Asian stop – on the world-tour in March 2009 which will be presented in Singapore in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
